My name is "Pat Smith", and I am a high school senior that is considering a career in actuarial science, because of my interests in math, finance and economics. Up until now, the only information that i have found on actuarial science has been through websites and brochures. Even though this information is useful, it's not the same as seeing what an actuary does in person. I would like to job shadow an actuary so I can witness the daily activities that an actuary performs and see if i can picture myself doing the same 20, 30 or 40 years from now. Could you please help me find such a placement for the summer?
